JERUSALEM — The Jeru-
salem Municipal Council, by
a vote of 10 to 9, Tuesday
night refused to permit Mayor
Gershon Agron to attend the
Congress of International Un-
ion Trade Locals convening,
next Wednesday in West Ber-
lin.
The Mayor had been sched-
uled to lead an Israel dele-
gation to the conference.
The deciding vote was cast by
Abraham Arrest. Arrest is a
member of the municipal coali-
tion but which is in dispute
with Mayor Agron in connec-
tion with the recent Histadrut
elections.
Councilman Arrest said, how-
ever, his negative ballot was a
"vote of conscience" because
he felt as did the other oppos-
ing councilors that Jerusalem's
Mayor should not make an
official trip to Germany.
Agron said he thought his
"demonstrative absence" might
hurt Israel in West German
relations and also greatly re-
duced any possibility that the
labor organizations' next con-
ference might be held in
Jerusalem.

The professor's slide-illus-
trated lecture dealt with his
two trips to Russia, during
which he obtained micro-
filmed copies of more than
10,000 valuable Hebrew man-
uscripts, besides an eyewit-
ness report of Jewish life
in the USSR.

Dr. Katsh, who plans a third
trip to Russia soon, said that the
USSR has the largest collection
of Hebrew treasures in the
world. One 30-pound manu-
script, which he brought back
with him to the West dated
from 1290. Another he • found
was written by Maimonides. A
book stall unknowing sold the
volume for $40.
Two Torahs which he sent to
the Hebrew Academy of Science
once belonged to the Czar. One
scroll, in a set of 20, dated from
the 11th century.

value placed on such objects

JERUSALEM (JTA)—The
Arab League's plan to sum-

immigration to Israel has
collapsed. Cairo Radio an-
nounced that the conference
plans have run into "diffi-
culties," and that Iraq has
flatly refused to attend.

ment discourages religion, he
said, to the extent that there
are but three synagogues: in
Moscow, Lenningrad and Kiev.
To put out a sider there, Dr
Katsh said, takes years, not only
for development but for obtain-
ing permission to even photo-
stat the book.
On practically every page of
a prayer book, he added, "there
is the line 'God bless the USSR,
protagonist of peace'."
A lack of cultural activities
has resulted in much inter-
marriage there, Dr. Katsh said,
"and there is still the tradi-
tional anti-Semitism making it
difficult to get jobs." Economi-
cally, he added, the situation of
the Jew is not bad, since the
government finds the elite too
valuable to dismiss.
"The Russian Jew is an
anomaly," Dr. Katsh said. He
pdinted out that while he is
stamped a "nationality" on his
identification card, he has no
territory nor the opportunity
to develop his Hebrew language
and culture.
Dr Katsh added that there
is a law there which allows an
individual to study the religion
of his nationality only if a total
of ten families expresses the
desire to do so.
"We always found nine such
families," he said, "but never
a minyan."
Philip Slomovitz presided at
the meeting.
Musical selections were given
by Ariel Stiebel and Israel
Hochberg, on the accordion and
chain.

To The Jewish News
JERUSALEM — Michael Co-
may, assistant director general
of the Israel Foreign Ministry,
left Wednesday for Rome to
present Israel's op p o s i ti on
against the projected signing
of an agreement between the
Arab League and the United
Nations Food and Agricultural
Organization (FAO).
The FAO Council, now meet-
ing in Rome, has on its agenda
a proposal for such an agree-
ment.
Israel's position is that no
comparison is possible between
the Arab League and, as an
example, the organization of
American states which signed
such an agreement with FAO
as a genuine regional organiza-
tion.
Comay will contend that the
League is not such an organiza-
tion because' it excludes Turkey,
Iran and Israel.
He will also argue that since
the Arab League's sole aim is
economic and political warfare
against Israel it would be un-
thinkable for a UN agency to
give official recognition to an
organization whose purpose is
to ficrht a member of the UN.

LONDON (WJA) — Syrian

Jews from Aleppo and a Leba-

Arab News Agency, quoting the
Damascus d a i l y Al-Jamahir.
They are said to have been
found near Tall Kalakh (Horns
Governate) trying to cross into
Lebanon. The Lebanese alleged-
ly confessed he was "one of a
group of ten engaged in smug-
gling Jews from Syria into Leb-
anon and thence into Israel."
